Budding cherries onto plums

Has anyone budded cherry buds onto a plum or an apricot?

I budded two bing cherry buds onto my myrobalan plum x moorpark apricot hybrid (late September) and they are are still alive.

Do you think that they will sprout next spring?

I have read that it can be done. Send me some bing cuttings and I will try to replicate your experiment.

I'll be happy to send you some scions...but, my cherry tree (i got it this past August, I believe) is just a twig with three small four-inch long branches.
